mrbs Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies
  4. mrbs-1.9.2.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).
Meeting Room Booking System

The Meeting Room Booking System (MRBS) is a PHP-based application for
booking meeting rooms (surprisingly!). I got annoyed with the piles of books
which were being used to book meetings. They were slow, hard to edit and only
at the reception desk. I thought that a nice web-based system would be much

Some parts of this are based on WebCalender 0.9.4 by Craig Knudsen 
( but there is now very little
which is similar. There are fundamental design goal differences between
WebCalendar and MRBS - WC is for individuals, MRBS is for meeting rooms.

To Use
See the INSTALL file for installation instructions.

Once it's installed try going to http://yourhost/mrbs/

The first thing you'll need to do is login as an administrator and create
areas and rooms.

The default authentication scheme uses a database table in the MRBS
database. To create the first user click the "User list" link in the
top-right of the page. If there aren't any users defined in your database
yet, you will be able to create the first administrator.

Once you have logged in as an administrator you can click on "Rooms" and
create first an "Area", and then a "Room" within that area.

There are other ways to configure authentication in MRBS, see the
file AUTHENTICATION for a more complete description.

It should be pretty easy to adjust it to your corporate colours - you can
modify the themes under "Themes" or (preferably) copy an existing theme
to a new directory and modify the new theme.

See COPYING for licensing info.

See NEWS for a history of changes.

See AUTHENTICATION for information about user authentication/passwords.

- PHP 5.4.0 or above with MySQL and/or PostgreSQL support
- MySQL (5.5.3 and above) or PostgreSQL 8.2 or above.
- Any web server that is supported by PHP

- JavaScript-enabled browser
- CSS-enabled browser
- PHP module connection to the server (also called SAPI) if you want to use any
  of the basic http authentication schemes provided.

(If you are considering porting MRBS to another database, see README.sqlapi)

- Some users reported errors using some accelerators (APC, PHP Accelerator).
  If you get messages like this : "Internal Zend error - Missing class
  information for ...", your accelerator is the cause.

The current project maintainer reports using it at work with about 150 clients.
Many other reports of successful use have been seen on the MRBS mailing list,
and your report would be welcome there too. Let us know who is using MRBS!
